Out Of The Frying Pan- Stephen Fry


Oh dear, oh dear, actor, comedian, intellectual giant and national treasure Stephen Fry has got into a bit of hot water this week. After tweetingpictures from the set of the latest Harry Potter movie, Warner Brothers apparently requested he removed them forthwith.

Later in the week Fry was quoted as saying that he feels sorry for straight men as women aren’t generally too keen on making the beast with two backs, submitting that “it’s the price they are willing to pay for a relationship”. Obviously if Fry is correct this means I’ve been lied to countless times and the earth didn’t really move!! …Damn you Fry ! Now I’m beginning to doubt my once unquestionable prowess !

Stephen Fry-deletes Twitter?

Admittedly my first reaction was that Stephen appears to have regressed back to the 1970’s, but that was nothing compared to the twitter-verse lynch mob, as they went into overdrive, jerking their knees and bleating that Fry should be hung in Parliament Square via his (doubtless) magnificently humongous testicles, until such time as they are engorged and bright purple; like overripe Tuscan Valley plums.  At this point his plump, puce pods should be pummelled with splintered cricket bats as Fry is handed his I-phone and attempts to beg for clemency using just 140 characters.  However, one suspects as an ex public school boy, Fry may regard that sort of behaviour as more of a guilty pleasure, than an actual punishment.

Others defended young Stephen, many observing (including it is noted, one Mrs Von Pip,) that he was merely  highlighting a painful, unspoken truth whilst also helping to  shatter the final taboo that has for so long haunted  the shadowy world of heterosexual sex.  Namely that women would sooner drink neat bleach than blow a gentleman’s love trombone, although many accept that ultimately it’s a price worth paying as all their friends have men and they don’t really want to come across as ‘a bit Lesbian.’ Some young ladies confusingly tweeted that ‘Feminism was gay‘, whilst others said that all this nagging would simply give women a bad name , and really shouldn’t these feminists be busy preparing their man a delicious meal wearing a thong, suspenders and high heels ? After all, he’s bound to have developed an insatiable appetite following a spot of late afternoon dogging !  Ah the Sisterhood is alive and well it seems!

As an upshot of all this blathering, Mr Fry has not only deleted the Harry Potter photos, but it transpires he may have also deleted his twitter account claiming he’s being painted as the gay, I-phone loving anti-Christ and has been horribly misquoted, signing off with a pithily inspired “bye,bye”.

Still, whatever the rights and wrongs it gives us an ideal opportunity to indulge in some Photoshop fun, sadly it also gives the Daily Mail, who are no fans of Mr Fry, the chance to produce yet more spurious nonsense too.

According to  Daily Mail journalist Jan Moir, former Boyzone singer Stephen Gately died of “being gay.” The article can be read in it’s full vileness here

We have written to the press complaints comission to register our anger at such  a disgusting, inhuman and hateful article. We urge others to do the same. Moir will doubtless call this sort of thing  a ‘carefully orchestrated campaign’ .Ermmm by who we are not exactly sure,  probably those “gays” ?  Maybe Stephen Fry is pulling  everybody’s strings from his “lair” , that secret  hideaway, deep within a dormant volcano before he fires up his “Gay-Ray Gun” and turn us all into the sort of folk Moir disapporoves of ?   For the record we’re not gay,  we  f**king loathed  Boyside and Westzone’s music, but we do like to think  we are not totally devoid of humanity….anyway…here’s the letter to the PCC from “Team Pip “...

“I wish to complain about the breach of clause one of the code. It is factually inaccurate to say that young , healthy men do not go to bed and not wake up again.Apparently healthy people die every day due to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Moir dismisses the family’s assertion that their son’s death was due to a heart condition despite the fact that the cause of death, pulmonary oedema, happens as a result of heart failure.Also,is she asserting a link between cannabis use and heart failure?

I feel she is also in breach of clause twelve of the code in that she is using her factually inaccurate assertions to reinforce predjudices against a particular group of people on the basis of their sexual orientation.The whole tone of the article, from the headline onwards, is designed to portray the idea that Mr. Gately’s death was in some way sinister and that this is inextricably linked with the fact that he was homosexual.Had this tragedy happened to a heterosexual ‘celebrity’ , I don’t believe that it would have attracted the same type of comment and so on that basis I would argue that the article is discriminatory .”
